Student psychologist

Online Student Wellbeing Platform
Information on mental health.

Student psychologists offer short-term, solution-oriented help with study problems and/or personal problems. You can contact us if you suffer for instance from performance anxiety or procrastination and when faced with sadness, fear, insecurity or family problems.

All students at the University of Twente can use the services of the student psychologist. No referral needed and it is free of charge.

  • WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU

    During an orientation meeting, we make an assessment of your complaints and what kind of help you need. There are a number of options such as:

    • Short-term individual treatment (up to 5 appointments)
    • Participation in E-Health modules
    • Participation in a group/training
    • Referral advice (via the GP, you are redirected to external aid)
